I have been low carb for almost a year, and will tell you zucchini lasagna is a fantastic addition to the meal lineup. You can use any lasagna recipe and substitute zuch for noodles. I use a cheese slicer to make strips of zuch, boil them a few minutes in a big Texas skillet, dump the water then very lightly brown them in a little butter. Season the strips with garlic salt and onion powder and they won't be bland!
I used this recipe as a springboard. I had my own meat sauce leftover from spaghetti and I made a modified version of the ricotta using soy (see my recipe Hidden Delights Lasagna)
Funny thing was that 5yr old realized the zucchini when hubby didn't! We did notice it being watery though and that was with precooking the zukes. Hubby suggested keeping in the noodles. I may use the uncooked noodles that you can get that cook right in the dish. That way they could soak up the extra liquid.
OMG, this is excellent. Other than doubling the garlic, I didn't change a thing.
I'm sorry but I did not like this at all. I'm a big time low carber and love Italian dishes, and love zucchini normally, but this just didn't work out at all. I even grilled the zucchini but instead of blending in, it stood out and never blended with the other ingredients, tasting like grass for some reason. I followed this recipe exactly, except for adding 1/2 tablespoon of garlic instead of just the mashed clove. I did end up eating around the zucchini but I still wasn't thrilled. Sorry.
This was a good recipe. I grilled my sliced zucchini before concocting my lasagne. I used ground turkey, doubled the meat, and the cheese mixture as well as the herbs and garlic. Next time I make this, I think I will add an onion bechamel as the top layer to add to the richness. Thanks for a good base recipe.
I made this today and it was super yummy! My husband gave it a A . I only made a few changes. I used 1lb of ground turkey instead of ground beef. I also didn't add the water. I grilled the squash on the BBQ just for a few minutes on each side. I also added some green bell pepper to the sauce. Oh and I doubled the oregano, basil and thyme.
Amazing! I just finished making 5 of these lasagnas to freeze. It took about 3 hours to make that many, but it used up a ton of zucchini and the family loves this dish. Thank you so much for sharing!
We ALL LOVED this! I used turkey & hot turkey sausage smoked mozzerella. Also added in fennel seed & crushed red pepper. This is now part of the family collection - Thank you!
